We had a Clio, it was a 1993 K reg, so a bit older. That too had a remote key and the immobilser was a separate one in the glovebox.
The key itself was just a key and an infra red remote - no immobiliser actually in the key.
However, if yours is slightly newer it may be different, although it sounds like it is the same.
I would double check with Renault but I'm pretty sure you don't need a coded immobiliser key. It will probably need to be coded to the car though for the infra red remote to work. If you are not bothered about having remote locking, just get a normal key to use in the locks. It will be cheaper.
